A few weeks ago I was asked to do something a little out of my realm as a floral designer. A client came to me asking for assistance in making their golf club's clubhouse look a little more appealing. He asked if I could take my cut-flower aesthetic and apply it to live, potted plants. He wanted flower boxes and flower pots filled with lush, full, beautiful assortments of flowers. I couldn't say no. I greatly enjoy gardening, love playing in the dirt, and am always up for a challange.
The Salt Pond is a golf club located in Bethany Beach, DE. Their clubhouse and snack bar are now outfitted in gorgeous flower boxes.
I planted an assortment of pink, red & purple blooms in the flower boxes that were placed on the clubhouse railings. Salvia, geraniums, coxcomb, variegated spike plants, dusty miller, and ivy paired nicely against the grey railings and red brick accents.
Two large flower pots containing tall purple foxglove, white geraniums, dusty miller and vinca vines were placed at the top of the stairway.
Birdie's Snack Bar was outfitted with a flower box of yellow and orange blooms. Fun peach gerber daisies set the tone and were surrounded with dusty miller, coral wave petunias, and yellow marigolds.
I'm looking forward to visiting Salt Pond again in a few weeks to see how the planters have grown. I'm hoping they are in full-bloom and bursting with color! Thank you for the challenge of taking my floral designs and applying them to live plants!
